 IGI Batch numbers for England.
Listed by County but note that there may some counties here that you don't recognise. If so, that is because they exist in the IGI (doubtless erroneously) as counties and so are included here for completeness. Occasionally they may actually be names of towns and not of counties.

 IGI Batch Numbers - British Isles and North America
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often referred to as the LDS) has made the International Genealogical Index (the "IGI") available on the internet at http://www.familysearch.org and provided a very effective searching capability. However, it is not always easy to locate your ancestors (even if they are there in the IGI) using the search mechanisms provided at that site. This is because a search by last name only is not permitted unless you search within a single batch of records at a time or, at minimum, across the entire country (not even a single county let alone a town). If you have a rare name this might be OK but what if you are looking for Smith or Jones?

 Transcribing English parish registers
A database is the ideal way to store information such as a parish register. It can be sorted and searched in seconds (or less), even with a file containing hundreds of thousands of records. We can still print out a meaningful “transcription” onto paper, and the database can also be used to create an instant index for the paper print, although in use in the computer, indexes are no longer needed, as the information can be searched for and found incredibly quickly. But we need to consider the way that the data is entered in the first place, and hence the point of this article.

 Index of Victorian, Edwardian and 20th Century UK Photographs
Many years ago Rosemary and Stan Rodliffe began their search for Edwin Mowll who probably took photographs of their Norfolk ancestors on a summer outing to Holkham in 1883. They traced Edwin's birth at Dover in 1851, his move to Lynn where he had a studio around 1885 and then to Birmingham. They have yet to find their ancestors in his photographs but they became interested in the migration of photographers and dating of photographs and so this site was born.

 MJF's web pages - War Memorial Name Transcripts
The national inventory of war memorials are cataloguing the (estimated) 54,000 UK war memorials: they have around 45,000 catalogued so far, but searchable name listings are unlikely to be on-line for some time. Until then, here are listings of a tiny fraction of that total. I hope these pages can supplement the Commonwealth War Graves Commission's on-line Debt of Honour Register: these pages list men by the parish they came from, and include Rolls of Honour, which often list all those who served, rather than just those that died. Also included are memorials on family gravestones, which are not always in the CWGC database, and older memorials from e.g. the Crimean war, the Boer War, graves of old soldiers or civilian war casualties, and some lists of those serving that I found in local newspapers.

Warwickshire Registration Service is working with volunteers to allow free internet web access to birth, death and marriages index data. This data will allow registration staff to identify much more easily and quickly, the original record in the registers in which births, deaths and marriages were entered at the time of registration right back to 1st July 1837.
